June 5 is celebrated across the nation as National Doughnut Day!
For many in the country, it symbolizes breakfast on the go. But today is to highlight the past war-time value of doughnuts. According to the national day calendar, the salvation army created the day in 1938 to honor not the sweet treat, but the women who served them to soldiers in World War One.
These ladies were called the salvation army lassies. They used the treats to boost the morale of the troops.
